Ca Left Breast Cancer, Chemo cycles (weekly Paclitaxel- 12; Herceptin- 17)

I visited many doctors but my disease was diagnosed only by Dr.Koppiker. I was very scared but Dr.Koppiker gave me reassurance and treatment started at Dr.Koppiker’s clinic. That time I was in a bad financial state so I met C.E.O. of Prashanti Cancer Care Mission, Ms. Laleh Busheri. She gave me a lot of financial support and also did some of my treatment free of cost.

The staff of Prashanti Cancer Care Mission supported me a lot. Especially Gorge Brother, Sneha, Megha and Vaishali Ma’am helped me a lot. Also Dr. Deshmukh (Medical Oncologist) gave his valuable support.

Because of the valuable cooperation and financial support given by Dr.Koppiker and Laleh Ma’am I was able to fight with this disease. I am very thankful to them.

One of our patients and conqueror, Mrs. Sucheta Limaye, was treated for metastatic breast cancer at Orchids. Sharing her experience she said, “I was diagnosed with 4th stage metastatic breast cancer in May 2015. During the initial shock and panic, I got myself admitted to another hospital in Pune where the doctors insisted I should go in for a port and aggressive chemotherapy without waiting for the full biopsy results. I checked myself out and came to Dr. Koppiker for a second opinion. What an emotional relief I got by his calming words. He said, ‘There is urgency, but no emergency! Let all test results come. Take your time, get other opinions if you wish and start when you are ready’. When the treatment protocol was finalized, I visited a few other hospitals before deciding to have the chemotherapy at Orchid’s. Dr. Koppiker’s and Dr. Deshmukh’s presence was a big factor of course, but the ‘non-hospital’ ambiance, the cheerful and friendly staff and the super efficient, deft handed Brother George tipped the balance irrevocably in Orchid’s favour. I am glad about the decision! The daycare administration of the chemotherapy on a comfortable recliner goes like a breeze. Today is the 38th IV administration of my chemotherapy and that too without having to use a port!”
